The former President of Colombia has prompted a backlash from LGBT groups in the South American country after referring to LGBT people as “non-heterosexuals.” On Thursday, former President Alvaro Uribe Velez posted a video to his Facebook and Twitter accounts to encourage LGBT people to vote for conservative candidate Ivan Duque in the upcoming round of the Colombian presidential election. According to the BBC, Uribe Vele stated in the video that he wanted to show his support for marriage equality and the rights for LGBT people to adopt, as well as abortion rights. However, many people took to social media to criticise Uribe Vele’s use of the term “non-heterosexuals.”
